Doctor Or NP

Doctor Or NP

Hello, I have PCOS and I'm doing a research paper on PCOS for my English Class and was wondering if there's anyone on the medical staff that could answer some questions? I was diagnosed with PCOS when I was 21 years old and I'm now 40 years old. It's hard to lose weight, become pregnant (given up on that), the missed periods, insulin resistance and my list go on. So when we were given the option to write a research paper on an issue that means the most to us, I picked PCOS. Not many people out… read more

Heavy Periods After Not Having One For A While

I have had PCOS for approximately 3 years. In between these 3 years I've have maybe 2 periods (random spotting inbetween the count of this is unknown but a lot). I just started a period 2 weeks ago. My last period was May of 2018 and it was normal and lasted about 7-9 days or so and wast super heavy, just normal. However, this period IS SO HEAVY and I have been clotting a lot.

I have had the same issues before in the past, I found it best to see my Primary, who was able to give me medication to slow the bleeding, and examine the clots in case something else was going on

Different Types Of PCOS

Different Types Of PCOS

I have been off my birth control for 9 months now and I would still go months without a period. After months of no period I would have one light for a month or two. In most cases I've read about people don't have them at all. i have never hear of anyone having longer periods. Is there anyone else like this? Also, have you found that other women in your family struggled with PCOS.

Has Anyone Else NOT Lost Weight On Metformin?

Has Anyone Else NOT Lost Weight On Metformin?

Really was expecting weightloss, even a few lb. I've been taking 2000mg daily for nearly 8 months. 1000mg aftee breakfast, 1000mg after dinner. I'm considered obese according to BMI at 5'4, 218lb, in case this info matters. I also eat under 2000 calories daily, most days about 1800. No reatrictions yet on dairy, sugar, gluten... though I don't go crazy with them.

A myPCOSteam Member said:

I am struggling too with losing weight. I just started taking my metformin again 500mg on top of going with a low to zero carb diet (Keto diet). Will see if I have any progress.

Cold Like Symptoms Before Period?

Cold Like Symptoms Before Period?

Does anyone else get cold like symptoms before their period comes? I noticed this the first cycle I had since being on metformin, and I'm wondering if that means this is about to happen again...
Its like a stuffy nose, headache, head cold. I feel sick (not nauseous, but like i'm coming down with something), and sooo tired. This happened right before I got my first period on metformin (for like a week). I'm hoping this isn't going to happen every time...

Is Anyone Else Ambivalent About Having Children?

Is Anyone Else Ambivalent About Having Children?

I know this is a delicate question since so many women are struggling with infertility. I'm certainly not trying to diminish or undermine the pain and difficulty that goes along with that.

I'm 33, been married for 5 years, and I just don't feel that draw. On top of the weight, depression, facial hair, it just makes me feel like something is irretrievably broken.

A myPCOSteam Member said:

For many years I was not treating my PCOS and actually felt ambivalence about having kids or being around them. I had a friend that would stop everything at stores to talk to babies. It was so absurd… read more
